1st birthday : little things for little people

i just have the time to sit down and sort out the pictures taken two saturdays ago.
oct 22 was the day we had a small gathering at home for little bb's 1st birthday.

i didn't get the chance to hold the camera much that day as i was busy with making sure our guests were well attended.
so the photo taking role fell on my friends' shoulders.

i was only able to take the following few shortly before the arrival of our guests.

here's a little birthday hat made for little bb.
it's quite similar to the one i made for him when he was three months old,
only this one has more details on the front.
i sprinkled a generous amount of german glass glitter to make the number 1,
actually, i did it twice - the second layer of glitter was added when the first layer was thoroughly dried.
it turned out to be quite nice as it gives an added thickness and depth to the number 1
(of course, it is just a minor detail that no one else would have spotted ^-^)
the little zebra and lion were from a cupcake decoration set.
yes, animal parade was the theme of the party!

and on a very very last minute basis,
i made 8 more party hats for our little guests....
as you can see, the pom pom on the first hat was about to escape!
i was very happy to see that three of our little lovely guests put them on!
siu momo was one of them!

i wasn't going to get them.... 
because there weren't any that match the color theme of the party.
but in the end, i did....
and these are the closest color i could find.

little party favors for the little guests!
each bag is filled with slightly different goodies to fit the likes of our little guests.
one has tinkerbell, another has hello kitty, etc... for the girls
while the boys got woody, buzzlight year, mcqueen, etc... 

it was a lot of fun decorating the bags too!
i used a lot of german glass glitter again.
yes, i love glass glitter!
blue glitter for the boys
and pink glitter for the girls.

i love these!
i love marshmellows!
even better when they come in snowy white and pastel colors and SWIRLED!
i got a handful of them and put through striped straws to each one.
when i was making them, i had this picture of our little guests holding them,
eating them like lollipops.
and yes, that was exactly what it was like on that day!
i was very very happy to see that our little guests liked them!

and some more little things for our little guests.
i picked pastel color jelly beans (especiall for didi!), goldfish mix and organic bunny pretzels
for our little guests to munch on.

and more marshmellows and candies!

the center piece on the kids' corner.... animal parade on a carousel!
i saw the little guests having fun spinning it.

the paper pom poms i made....  which are still by the window right now.
